A number of companies have floated the idea of cutting workers to part-time or laying off staff to avoid the full-time employee mandate of 50 employees. Any company with 50 or more employees must provide health insurance under Obamacare.
Over the last decade, a growing number of employees have become flex-time, working more than 30 hours but less than 40. Under Obamacare, these flex-time employees would either need to work below 30 hours or be provided health insurance as a full-time employee.
Under the change proposed by Travis, many retailers and food service industry jobs would be able to enact Obamacare without slashing hours or cutting employees. These employees would still be eligible for health care from the health exchanges being put in place by the federal government in 26 states.
